Mapping allotments about 2 months ago

Interesting thoughts. I find myself in a similar place when complaining about funding. I want assistance from the companies that benefit from our altruism, but at the same time I don’t want to spoil what we’ve got. Maybe we need to examine history and try to avoid the same mistakes?

PostCards from the Edge: A Tour of OSM Data Analyses + Visualizations (SOTMUS 2019) over 1 year ago

I see that ITOWorld animations have been mentioned…but, you’ve really got to include “OSM 2008: A Year of Edits” https://vimeo.com/2598878 for its historical relevance. Over the years many, many OSM talks have begun by showing it, to the point of it becoming a cliche.

A little shop contact page ...with OpenStreetMap over 1 year ago

the tiles are from tiles.wmflabs.org aka Wikimedia Foundation Labs. Is that a legit source?

Mapping larger solar farms in England over 1 year ago

Oh, hi, the REPD table was added by me. It’s been very useful for saying what is a wind ‘farm’ and what is ‘just a small turbine in someone’s field’, as well as being a good driver for hunting down wind and solar farms. I haven’t made a concerted effort on the solar yet but will most likely be triggering the next OSMUK Quarterly Project on it https://www.loomio.org/p/MoIw3091/-solar-power-will-be-the-q3-july-sept-2019-quarterly-project

If you are coming to the OSMUK AGM on June 29 we could chat.

Have you found the solar farm that is floating on the surface of a reservoir yet?!
